ED directly arrested without any summons in money laundering case: AAP leader Sanjay Singh tells SC

AAP leader Sanjay Singh, who is in custody in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that no summons were issued to him prior to his arrest.

Singh’s counsel submitted that he was arrested after the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) witness Dinesh Arora made a statement against him in July 2023.

A bench of justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta was hearing submissions on behalf of Singh on his plea challenging his arrest and remand in the money-laundering case.

The bench said it would continue hearing the arguments in the matter on April 2.

“I (Singh) am named for the first time on July 19, 2023 by one Dinesh Arora. Before this date, there were nine statements by the same Dinesh Arora in which he never took my name,” senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi, who was representing Singh, said.

Arora was granted pardon by a trial court here and made an approver in the case.

The senior counsel said no summons were issued to Singh and the ED officials directly came to his house and arrested him.

Singh had also challenged an order of the Delhi High Court which refused to grant him bail in the money laundering case.
